This study examines the current state of pre-service teachers' preparation to integrate Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in teaching in four colleges of education in Israel. Data were collected using a questionnaire administered to college pre-service teachers, interviews with Heads of ICT Centers as well as analysis of teacher training programs. 1,216 respondents and four ICT Center Heads participated in the study. Results indicate that, in general, necessary conditions for ICT integration in teaching and learning exist within the colleges, however the pedagogical aspects of teacher preparation for ICT-based teaching are not emphasized enough. This situation in Israeli colleges of education raises a need to re-examine the goals of teacher education in the information age and to plan its effective implementation.
